Sweet! By Holly | Orlando

Dessert Review from Google: I have loved Sweet By Holly cupcakes since I went to college at UNF from 2011-2015. I had never tried a cake before so for my birthday this year, my roommate got me a Sweet By Holly cake. It was Boston Cream flavored inside. The design of the cake was per request and I believe was executed well. Would highly recommend! 👍🏼
